    Question Milk (pool) strips - where to buy?

    Can any of the CAnadian COTHers advise where I might find some test strips for milk testing this time of year? I've tried Walmart and CDN Tire, no luck so far. Any ideas? I've never had a pool, so no idea where to even start.... Help?

    Walmart also has the fish tank test strips (had to use these last year as it wasn't pool season but as long as you make sure they have calcium and PH you'll be good!)
    First and foremost about the horse.

    I'm in Canada, you have to got to the Pet Department in Walmart. They are in the fish section and called Quick Dip aquarium test strips - made by Jungle. Lots of people call them Jungle pH strips.

    I agree with Walmart. Fish or pool are fine just make sure the pH registers down to at least 6.2

    I am not in Canada, but you should be able to get them anywhere there are pool or aquarium supplies sold. You need calcium and pH on the strip, and make sure it is one that goes down to 6.2 on the pH side.
